Ecumenical Memorial Service for Jean Vanier

June 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Jean Vanier, founder of the Faith & Light and L’Arche communities, servant of Jesus, widely read author and inspirational speaker died in Paris on 7 May.

His message which goes beyond religious and cultural barriers redirects our attention to the importance of “being with” others, especially the most vulnerable.

A National Memorial service to honour Jean’s, life will be held at St Gregory’s Church, 30 Cotswold Avenue Bishopdale at 11am on Saturday 8 June.

All are invited to attend.
